Synopsis

  • $9.99 is an animated feature film which offers slightly less than a $10 worth about the meaning of life.

    Have you ever wondered What is the meaning of life? Why do we exist? The answer to this vexing question is now within your reach! Youll find it in a small yet amazing booklet, which will explain; in easy to follow; simple terms your reason for being! The booklet, printed on the finest paper, contains illuminating, exquisite colour pictures, and could be yours for a mere $9.99.

    This is the ad that alters the life of the unemployed, 28 year old who still lives at home, Dave Peck. In his struggle to share his find with the world, Daves surreal path crosses with those of his unusual neighbours: an old man and his disgruntled guardian angel, a magician in debt, a bewitching woman who likes her men extra smooth, a broken hearted man who befriends a group of hard partying two inch tall students, and a little boy who sets his piggy bank free. Their stories are woven together, examining the post-modern meaning of hope.

    $9.99 is a stop motion puppet animation film, based on the short stories of Etgar Keret, one of the leading voices in Israeli contemporary literature. It is written by writer Etgar Keret and director Tatia Rosenthal, who also collaborated on Tatia Rosenthals two award winning short puppet animation films "Crazy Glue" and "A Buck's Worth"

    This comical stop motion animation explores the meaning of life, offering slightly less than $10 worth of explanation. Through playful puppetry Israeli author Etgar Kerets surreal short stories are brought to life, featuring the voices of Geoffrey Rush and Anthony LaPaglia.
